Hey Lee,
Greetings from West River..  We're using a 2 tier solution here at
Regional, Surf-Control's E-Mail filter is the first box you hit coming
into here, works nice and is extremly configurable.  Then you hit the
Exchange servers which have Sybari's Antigen for Exchange on them, it
runs 4 anti-virus engines and also does more spam filtering and filetype
filtering.  It works nice to keep all those "stupid video" WMVs and
MPEGs out of the system, you can have it strip any file type you want
and it'll quarantine that file, if the user has a legitimate reason to
get it you can release it.  But tell me, how many users are going to
call the helpdesk to have that funny Budlight commercial released.  haha
With the 2 of them together we're keeping most spam out and haven't been
hit by an email virus since going to Exchange 2000.

I know this has been addressed before, but I'll ask again...

What is the current feeling on anti-spam products for Exchange?

I've gone from using nothing, to Exchange IMF, to Symantec products
etc... And am just curious what others feel is the best and most
cost-effective solution.

Thanks much!
